Crispy cheesy and potato is how I want to start every recipe! Leftover mashed potatoes or make double so you can have this amazing comfort food dinner.
I am sooo excited for you to make this carb heaven recipe with a cheesy hat. Whenever I make my brown butter mashed potatoes, I always make double so tomarrow I can have this crazy indulgent quesadilla! Even Tom, who needs meat in every recipe, craves this and asks “are we having mashed potato quesadillas tomorrow?”.
Start your pans and get ready – I know you will fall in love at first crunchy bite.
